Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
This week, Scott, and Steven pay tribute to one of this country’s finest actors .
Join us for the first of two special episodes featuring Sean Connery – this week, we take a look at Robin and Marian (1976) also starring Audrey Hepburn, Robert Shaw and Richard Harris.
It is twenty years after Robin Hood's heroics against Prince John and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Since then, Robin (Sir Sean Connery) has spent all his time outside of England, fighting as Richard the Lionheart's right-hand man in the Crusades and in France. His only connection to his past life in Sherwood Forest is his faithful companion, Little John (Nicol Williamson). However, Richard the Lionheart is now dead and a war-weary, middle-aged Robin decides to return to England. His first priority: rekindle his relationship with Maid Marian (Audrey Hepburn). However, if he figured on a peaceful life, he didn't bargain on the machinations of the Sheriff of Nottingham (Robert Shaw) and King John (Sir Ian Holm).
“No more scars, Robin. It's too much to lose you twice.”
